Our film has 6 languages spoken in it. Thank you for bearing with the mistakes/ And our film deals with the inescapable human emotion of grief. Thank you for opening yourself up to the emotional journey of this film,” he wrote.
While concluding the letter, Cooglar stated, “We also made something to be enjoyed in a theatrical setting with friends, family, and strangers. Something to be quoted and discussed. To be debated. Something to make people both physically and emotionally feel seen.”
